    Well, it's out here. Picked up some at the store today.

    It tastes much as I remember it - but I wasn't aware until I looked at the label that they went and added caffeine, and a preservative, to it. That kind of changes how I personally perceive it, as back then, I always treated it as an alternate to other caffeine-free drinks, and not as an alternate to Pepsi.

    The graphics, well... It's no secret that I haven't cared for Pepsi's graphic design department since the logo change a few years ago. So they had to tweak the logo... I understand why, I guess. They don't want to create something that could be claimed as a decades-old product, so they made it noticeably different, but it still looks like crap to me. And they didn't even bother to put a in the Pepsi lettering like it had back in 1992... to me that screams that they know how badly they mucked it up.

    I found I still had a sun-baked Crystal Pepsi vending machine insert from the early 90s, as well as a (drained) original can:



    And the ingredients labels between the two:
